Letter to a TV Baby

"If you can't appreciate anything but the same old radio hits from the '70s, stay home and watch late-night TV so you can take advantage of those cut-rate anthologies they always advertise.

The other night, when we started a Ray Charles tune, some TV Baby yelled out, 'Fuck you,' and stomped out with his girlfriend. Only the ignorant, the incurious, the brainwashed and the brain-dead, not to mention the rude, and possibly the racist individual would do something like that. TV Babies, stay home and watch American Idol or whatever they're selling you these days."
Waste My Time, Please

FRENCH CLIENT:  You have no editioned DVDs by Rodney Graham or Stanley Douglas.  Why is that?  I came all the way here from downtown because your...library...was said to have such things.

CJB:  What exactly are you looking for?

FC:  Well, from Douglas, Hors-Champs.

CJB [relying on admittedly sketchy memory]: That's an editioned copy of 2 or 3, all of which belong to museums or private collectors.

FC:  Well sometimes in an artist's birthplace one finds things.

CJB [spontaneously channeling Marlo Stanfield]:  Sir.  You want it to be one way.  But it's not.  It's the other way.

POSTSCRIPT:  FC did buy a $25 Rodney Graham catalog, but only after hyper-aggressive passive-aggressive price negotiation.

Q:  Sequence?

A:  A "work in pieces."  11 photographs in total: one big panoramic composite, and ten smaller 35mm-ish ones.  Toronto, spring 2013.
